It obviously happens over time but a competent shoe repair person with the right equipment can do it as well..

How old is the boot?? If it is well broken in, it may not like any more stretching.. You might be better off passing on this pair and finding another.

They are about two months old have maybe 10 hours total on them. They were bought new never had a problem until last weekend went skating Friday and Saturday night and got a blister on the top of the knuckle close to the nail of my second toe. I was practicing quite a bit of toe moves like the grapevine but I was thinking I could maybe stretch em just a little to prevent this or stop spending so much time on my toes

Not sure why, and it was only second toe on left skate. My solution was to buys these fabric coverd gel toe sleeve, I cut the end off, and was able to cut 2 sleeves long enough to cover my toe knuckle from one of these. They last a long time, are reusable. If your only fit issue is the top of the toe knuckle, these will solve the problem
